and social media. so was yesterday's tragedy preventible had vester flanagan gotten help? andrea mccarren talked to a noted clinical psychologist. andrea? >> jan, dr. samanoa was the expert who interviewed leroy malvo for 34 hours to learn what made his criminal mind tick. this afternoon he shared his insight into the mind of vester flanagan. >> so far we do not have the ability to predict who is going to commit a mass murder. >> reporter: dr. stanton saminou does not describe vester flanagan as mentally ill. he said the cold blooded killer knew exactly what he was doing and carried out a well planned ambush. >> even though these are the two homicides we know about, how many times in his mind had he killed people whom he found offensive? we'll never know.
>> reporter: in fact, in flanagan's rambling 23 page suicide note obtained by wusa9, the former reporter wrote, "in the final weeks of my life i put on a smiley face to disguise what was to come." >> one can blame the media. one can blame guns, but we have to come back to the person himself and who he was before this ever occurred. this man was troubled. >> reporter: flanagan detailed multiple confrontations with employers, colleagues and family members but blamed everyone but himself. >> vester flanagan. >> some of these people, i hate to say it, even if there were massive resources available, will resist treatment because they don't want to submit to anybody. >> reporter: "i've been a human powder keg for a while just waiting to go boom," flanagan wrote. we looked into statistics for
workplace violence and the most recent data is from 2013. the bureau of labor statistics reported more than 23,000 significant injuries due to assaults at work and more than 400 homicides. jan? >> andrea, thank you. at a news conference this afternoon flanagan's former employer wdbj tv said it had ordered the troubled employee to get counseling through its employee assistance program and the company said he did what he was asked to do. wal-mart is going to stop selling semiautomatic rifles including ar15s. a spokesperson said the decision was made earlier this year because fewer people are buying them. the sport rifles were being sold at less than 1/3 of the company's stores. d.c. police are on the scene of a shooting just outside of the washington arts diocese pastoral center. one adult male was taken from that scene with bun got wound is conscious and breathe --

[ yelling ] >> may mayor bowser had to shout over angry protesters. the mayor announced she's put 182 officers on the streets additionally and wants to spend another $15 million, but the protesters insist more cops is
the wrong approach. >> did you see what they're doing? i live here. i've got a daughter. >> she comes to a community neating with gun -- meeting with guns and kids. that's not the answer. >> i will not be shouted down or scared away when it comes to the safety of the people of the district of columbia. >> now the mayor wants to give police more powers to fight crime including the right to search for firearms in the homes of violent offenders who are out of jail under supervision. she insists she's not out to arrest more black men. she says she's out to save their lives. tonight a prince george's county man is behind bars charged with killing his girl friend's 1-year-old son. police arrested 28-year-old osmond sasay of riverdale. the little boy was found unresponsive at the home the suspect shared with the boy's mom on august 1st. he was pronounced dead later

east and that's disorganized in the tropical sense of the word, just not looking good. however, if it can survive the next couple days and get past the dominican republic, it's got a chance to get a lot stronger. so they've want tropical storm warnings up for puerto rico, the virgin islands, the dominican republic. forecast takes it over the southwest part of puerto rico. the north and east part of the dominican republic. if it's more over the center part, mountains will disrupt the circulation. it will be a mess and may fall apart. if it survives, it may head towards the bahamas and then we'll have to watch it for south east florida, real near palm beach 2:00 monday as potentially a hurricane. right now this trek has it parallel to the coast, could be over to the west or east. there's a lot of room for it to move. we definitely will watch it, but the threat to the southeast part of the u.s. certainly growing here for early next week, back with full weather in a few minutes. wall street shrugged off a
late day wobble recovering more recent declines. the day's gains came with encouraging signals on the u.s. economy with further help coming for a strong rally for shares in china. stocks closed more than 2% higher. the dow jones industrial average was up about 370 points for the day. the pandemonium over the remaining giant baby panda continues at the national zoo. keepers say the newborn panda cub is healthy and nursing throughout the night after sadly its smaller twin died. >> this is great news for the other panda cub. this is new video released hours ago it. shows mei xiang taking care of her baby just like any mommy would. you can even hear the little cub making noises perhaps testing out his vocal chords. he's growing more fur and getting a bit more plump. tomorrow the zoo will announce the cub's gender and which panda is the cub's daddy. >> the baby panda daddy, all right. we are just getting started on wusa9 news at 5:00, to some
serious stuff here, a maryland woman found dead in her home with her infant right next to her. scott broom has new information on this heartbreaking death investigation. that's coming at 5:30. >> who is up and down, the potential shakeup in the presidential campaign. we're tracking the numbers of. >> reporter: the body of a 16- year-old mount vernon high school student has been recovered. i'm surae chinn. that story is coming up.

water to try to help but lost sight of him. it was 8:30 last night. it was dark and his friends couldn't find him. >> don't go in the water. i mean it's dangerous. >> reporter: his family and friends want the public to know that he was a bright kid. he played piano. he was religious. he went to church every week and he could lighten up the room. in mount vernon surae chinn, wusa9. fairfax county -- >> fairfax county schools has been made aware of the tragedy and they're providing crisis counselors. lesli? let's talk a little campaign 2016 now. a new poll could potentially shake up the presidential campaign. it shows donald trump gaining strength, hillary clinton losing momentum and a surge in support for a politician who is not yet even in the running. quinnipiac university now finds trump at 28%, more than double his closest republican competitor. it also found that among democratic voters hillary clinton has lost 10 points in a month down to 45 but still
twice as much as bernie sanders, but it is vice president joe biden who is not even yet a candidate who comes away a winner. >> if joe biden were on the fence if one were advising him, they'd have to look at these numbers and say everybody else is not looking great and you look terrific. >> biden is expected to announce a decision next month. he met today with a leader of one of the most powerful and largest unions, the aflcio and that group has not yet endorsed a candidate. always watching always tracking, wusa9's first alert weather, d.c.'s most accurate. >> so keeping a close eye on erika right now. >> yeah. kind of a mess from a meteorological perspective even though it did all the rainfall in the dominica and will probably bring much needed rain to puerto rico because they've got drought conditions, hopefully not too much too quickly. i'm showing you the computer models, another tool we use to try to figure out where the tropical systems are going. there's a tight cluster here in
southwest puerto rico and the northern coast of the dominican republic. after that it's still a pretty good consensus it's going to head towards caicos. the farther out in time the spread gets more and more and this gets important because even though the general cluster is here, it's certainly possible that's on the right idea or that's on the right idea. forecasters, we have to try to figure out the most likely scenario. it's called probalistic forecasting. you'll notice some other models by tuesday afternoon there's three of them trying to bring it to cape hatteras. so clearly anybody from cape hatteras down to miami has to watch this storm very carefully. for us another day, beautiful, but the allergens improved a little bit. ragweed today is high and mold spores dropped to moderate, so a little relief. here we are now looking real
good at 5:00, 81 degrees, dew point 55, so still very comfortable out there with that humidity at 41% with temperatures in the 70s and 80s, reedville only got to 80 today and the mountains still holding only in the low 60s, feeling a lot like september than august, but the heat is going to be back. humidity levels in the 30s and 40s for the most part, so a very comfortable afternoon all thanks to high pressure which is not far from lexington, kentucky, northerly flow bringing us that cooler drier air. this front still kind of a cloudy damp time over at the beaches in the carolinas and that high will give us another couple nice days around here. speaking of the beaches, we're talking about a pretty good weekend to head over toward the beach this coming weekend, temperatures great friday and saturday in the low 80s, waters temps in the mid-70s, milder sunday but still good in the mid-80s. our forecast around here for tonight clear to partly cloudy, comfortably cool, 55 to 65, still a couple spots might be in the low 50s with light
winds, tomorrow kind of like today but a touch warmer. we start in the 50s and 60s. we'll finish out 82 to 87 and still not humid. that's the key. over the weekend saturday 88, hot not humid. so saturday night should be fine for the football preseason game at baltimore, stray storm sunday, but better chance of that's in the mountains. as you look at the extended forecast monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday a lot of heat, low rain chances, an isolated storm here or there. we'll be back with more (plays throughout)
